What is TRIO Day?
On February 24, 1986, a congressional resolution (H. Con. Res. 278) declared that Saturday, February 28, 1986, should be designated as "National TRIO Day" to commemorate the annual achievements of the Federal TRIO programs in communities across the country. Every year since then, the fourth Saturday in February is observed as National TRIO Day — an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of TRIO students and TRIO programs across the nation.
This year, National TRIO will be celebrated on Saturday, February 25, 2023! KY TRIO will sponsor events on Friday, February 24, 2023 - Saturday, February 25, 2023 at Bluegrass Community & Technical College!
